For this exhibitions we present work of those artists – art professors: Ernesto Carlos Pujazon Patron, Alex Wong and Wiesław Zaremba. Artist from Peru, Malaysia and Poland had faced the topic of relationship between human, structure made by human and nature.
Human and nature influence on each other on the opposite principle, which means, that by development of society human shows tendency of being less directly depended from nature. While indirectly this dependence rise. All of the structures created by human are the results of its activity. We spend the whole life on creating and destroying for blind and temporary profit. It happens because human is not only the element of nature, he is also transforming it. Human since the beginning and with rising intensity was remaking his environment to his own needs. It happened by interference in nature. Humanity recreate richness of nature into centers of cultural, religious and historical lives of society.
